Haw River Farmhouse Ales Newlin’s Original Oatmeal Pale Ale

This Pale Ale, Newlin’s Original Oatmeal Pale Ale, 5.2% ABV from Haw River Farmhouse Ales in Saxaphaw, North Carolina has late additions of floral hops, flaked with oats, and then uses Galaxy and Crystal hops. This ale pours an orange color with an almost two-finger white steady fading head. The aroma is citrusy, bitter, floral, and hoppy. The taste is lite, juicy, citrusy, bitter, and dry. The mouthfeel is light and soft. Then the finish is slightly floral with a little citrus flavor. The aftertaste is bitter, with a bit of citrus orange. Newlin’s Original Oatmeal Pale Ale is okay, a C- beer. I thought that flaked oats didn’t go well with the citrus flavors. They clashed with one another. But they weren’t terrible, just not that great. I wouldn’t recommend trying this. Please be kind, stay safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
